The art-money disconnect connect
(all I know about this sculpture is that it’s by George Sugarman)
In 2010, I spent $1979.54 on art supplies. My income from drawing was $0. I do believe the Feds at this point will consider art not to be a profession of mine, but a hobby.
Upon realizing this, I unwillingly but finally surrendered to hopelessness, coughing out the following declaration, “making money from drawing is just not going to happen.”
The next day I landed a show in Germany.
Shortly after, I experienced an “I know what I want to draw!” moment. After hours of fun, there were strange heads on my wall.
Last Wednesday, I was finally accepted into the Drawing Center’s Viewing Program.
Today we learned of $800 in dental payments. In January 2011, I earned $733 from translation. At this rate, this means I’m about to hit an art milestone, right?
